Joe Giunta and I (Sy Schiff) birded the bar at the Marina, near high tide. A nice group of shorebirds, but few species. The high light was 50+ RED KNOT, many still quite red. There were 125 AMERICAN OYSTERCATCHERS, a dozen RUDDY TURNSTONE and three dozen BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER.
After a short trip tp Robert Moses, returned and found somewhat fewer KNOT, but the addition of 30 SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHER, a SEMIPALMATED PLOVER, some SANDERLING and SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER. There were two SURF SCOTER in the water. It’s a start.
